[We have had, for a short time, the loan of the original volume of 
Church Records, in the hand-writing-s of Revds. Peter Thacher, John 
Tajlor, Nathaniel Robbins. On a blank page. Rev. Joseph McKean, 
the successor of the Rev. Mr. Robbins, makes the following state- 
ment : — 

" Fragment of Ch: Records. — Handed to me \loo8e\ by Edwai'd H. 
Robbins, Escf., September 3, 1798, which he said were all that could 
be found among his late Rev*^ Father's j^apers. I afterwards went, 
with my friend Nathaniel J. Robbins, and looked in a trunk of his 
father's ; but obtained no additions to this collection.

Rev. Peter Thacher's Answer to the Church and congregation in 
Milton, May 8, 1681. 

Dearly Beloved in our Lord Jesus Christ. 
Y^ serious and solemn consideration of y*' all-wise disposeing and 
leading hand of Divine providence both of yo'"selves and of me, ip re- 
spect of your first kind invitation of me unto y'' work of y^ ministry. 
In order unto settlement with you and taking office amongst y°", by 
which and y'= advice of y% y* most judicious and discerning I was per- 
swaded so far to comply with all as to remove myself and my family 
to this place y* so I might y*^ more clearly disern and faithfully follow 
divine guidance and direction in my future settlement amongst you or 
remove from y"" according as God should unite y'^ harts of y' chh. and 
congregation unto me and mine and ours unto y"" or other wise dis- 
pose, and God having in his infinite goodness given me much Experi- 
ence of your undeserved love kindness and aflection of y' Chh. and 
Congregation to mee and mine, not only in your readiness to doe for 
mee as occasion hath presented, but in your obligeing gratitude pro- 
mised and in your unanimous, frequent and affectionate calls unto set- 
tlement with y"" and office engagement amongst yo" which unmerited 
and unexpected tho much desired unanimous aflection hath,_ doth 
and (continuing) I hope will much engage oblige and endear mine to 
your selves. Y" Consideration of all these things and many more 
which I might but shall not mention, calling aloud upon me for more 
y'" ordinary preponderation, due consultation, fervent suppHcation 
and spedy resolution with finall determination, I have diligently 
weighed and preponderated, seriously consulted with others Earnestly 
and extraordinary suplicated both publiq'ly, privately and secrectly

^'v divine g'uidance and conduct, and do therefore resolve and determine 
"! (with submission to divine soveraignty and in intire depcndance upon 
;: divine sufiiciency for assistance and acceptance) Notwithstanding my 
C^ deep uiiworthyness of, my great unfittness for, my too much backward- 
Y^' ness unto and my great discouragem''* in work of the ministry not 
only in respect of y* great duty and difficulty of y*" work in it self 
considered, but Especially in y** place in respect of those Lamementable 
animosityes and divisions which have been in y' place w'''' hath occa- 
sioned your unsettlement untill now w*^ y'^ Lord for his own name sake 
pardon and prevent for y'^ future. I say Notwithstanding y' yet I 
resolve and determine to give my self up unto y" work of y'' Lord in 
y** ministry among your selves (believing God calls me there unto) on 
y° Conditions. 

1. So long you continue one amongst your selves and for me, all 
due means being used or tendred for hearing In case of differance. 

2. So long as I may enjoy y'' liberty of my judgment according to 
scripture rule. 

3. So long as you shall subject your selves and yours to y** Ordi- 
nances and officers of y^ chh. 

4. So long as I may follow my studdys without distraction ; and 
provide for my self and family according to y'^ rules of God's word so 
long as you shall give me scripture encouragements, &c. I shall en- 
deavour to give my selfe up unto y^ work of y'' Lord unto w*"'' God 
and your selves are calling of me beging your prayers for me that I 
may come unto you in y" fullness of y'^ blessings of y" Gospell of peace, 
and y' all y' ministerial! assisting grace may be from time to time 
granted to me, whereby I may be helped thro' my whole ministeriall work 
unto God's glory to y'^ conversion edification and Eternall salvation of 
your soules, and unto my own peace comfort, and tranquillity and 
y*" best good of my family w"^"^ the Lord grant for his own name sake 
supliing all our needs according to y^ riches of his glory by Christ, 
unto whome be honour and glory in y*" chh. forever more. Amen.
